A.R.T./New York Theatres

502 West 53rd Street, NYC

September 1987. The edge of town. Gloria opens her door to the woman she hasn’t seen since she disappeared from home ten years ago. Mary sees the face that has haunted her memories of childhood and dreams of womanhood. But the reflection that the women seek in each other is dimmed and distorted by the years of silence. How did they get here? Did one of them take a wrong turn, or were they driven apart?

A thrillingly intimate drama, Sheila pits two women against the world: not to conquer it—to survive it. But what chance do they have to decide the terms of that survival?


Performance space for this production was subsidized by the A.R.T./New York Theatres Rental Subsidy Fund, a program of the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (A.R.T./New York).

Can a person build an identity— white or black — that outsmarts racism? A well-intentioned, open-minded man puts his conscience on the page, shifting an ambiguous landscape of secrets, ethics, and race around him and his biracial boyfriend.

What do you want to hear, and what are you willing to watch? The actors invite the audience to imagine what's beyond the scripted drama, nestled in the familiar nooks and crannies of human desire, where the truth is about ten dollars cheaper than a secret divulged.
